Tropical Storm Beryl was a strong Atlantic tropical storm. It was the second tropical cyclone of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season. Beryl formed on May 26 from a low-pressure system.[1] This system was near the East Coast of the United States.[2] It was described as a subtropical storm.[3] However, it slowly became stronger and was upgraded to a tropical storm on May 27.[4] It upgraded because it moved to warmer water.[5] Beryl is responsible for floods in Cuba.[6] This caused a mudslide that left two people missing.[7] Beryl caused rough surf to beaches in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. In South Carolina, one person was reported missing.[8]
